One of the most fragile things on this earth is the heart of a child. Everyday so many of these hearts are shattered by abuse, neglect and abandonment. Hearts are broken through substance abuse in the home or shattered as a result of domestic violence. Many of these children have suffered trauma that we cannot even imagine.
It is difficult for each of us to fathom who would break the heart of an innocent child although over and oven again it happens right here within our own community. With each passing day the numbers of abuse and neglect continue to rise.
According to a recent article in the Eatonton Messenger Georgia ranks close to the bottom (42) in the nation for child well-being. I often hear, “ Isn’t Foster Care being paid for through our taxpayers dollars? Yes, this is true, although the Department of Family and Children’s Services (Foster Care) simply have too many kids and too few homes.
Our Service area has lost almost 50% of foster homes in the last few years. These children entrusted to us as a community need our help to provide a home and bring hope to these fragile hearts so that healing can begin.
